How to get an internship from a manga publisher
First of all, I suggest being fairly knowledgeable in the workings of the company you're interested in. I LOVE manga and I try to keep myself fairly up to date on releases and announcements within the manga industry (I don't really enjoy anime as much, so my anime-related news is usually lacking).
Anime News Network is a pretty good resource, as is subscribing to their newsletters (most companies have them.)
I also found it useful to know what their products are, especially the ones that have either been newly released or are not the super popular series that EVERYONE knows about. Do your research and read a wide variety of their products. Devout fans are often the most passionate about the series that don't get enough love, and all the editors are fans, trust me.
Second, I would look around the corporate portions of the site to see if there is anything promising. I heard about the Viz internship from a friend who had done an internship with them herself

Guidelines for Setting Commission Prices
I'm going to be blunt with all'y'all.  You are most likely under-pricing your work.  That's okay, but please consider the following:
Industry Standard Price List for Book Illustration*
Black & White
Spread: $500-$1500Full Page: $500-$9500Quarter Page: $100-$350

Spread: $700-$2000Full Page: $500-$1500Quarter Page: $200-$400*From The Handbook of Pricing and Ethical Guidelines by the Graphic Artists Guild, ed. 13--basically the bible for all visual artists looking to sell and price their work.  Check your local library for a copy.
Not all artists are comfortable charging this much for their work, or maybe feel that their work isn't good enough to charge more than a few bucks (if anything at all), some are just doing it for fun and don't care about the money so much.  All of that is okay.  Individual commissioners usually don't have the kind of money to drop that large corporations do.  This

Writing Tutorial - How to write an Anti-Hero
Time to discuss Anti-Heroes!
Now we all know what the Protagonist is right? That’s the good guy. And the Antagonist? Well that would be your bad guy.
So who is this “Anti-Hero?”
To put it simply your Anti-hero is a type of protagonist. Male or female, they are often referred to as the “flawed protagonist”.
So they will be the main character we follow throughout the book but one that doesn’t really match up with the expected convention of “the protagonist/hero”
Quick point, I know in the past I have mentioned that a character should not be perfect. Gods no! we don’t want any Mary Sue’s running around.
However in my Creating characters post I did discuss making your characters believable and including vices and flaws. Now just adding a few

  • Listening to: Nothing But Theives - Itch
Hello everyone! :D 
    I changed my name, finally, after months of debating on a suitable name for myself. The old one is kind of making me cringe as I get older. My 15 year old self thought it was a good idea, but.... yeeeeaaahhh no. e_e So now I'm going by Chaolio. How do you like it? It's simply because of my love for chao. Not that anyone cares, but yeah. It might be changed. I don't know.

    Another thing! I'm thinking of doing commissions soon, but i'm still kind of setting up shop right now. Plus, I pretty much work everyday so I'm not quite sure how the whole thing will turn out. But it will be done!
